Why you should attend

The big lesson from the Global Financial Crisis is that deregulation leads to disaster. We learned that very painful lesson so well that it could never be forgotten again, right? Wrong!

The latest evidence of our ability to forget painful lessons learned comes in the form of HM Treasury’s “Future Regulatory Framework Review.” It contains proposals about “competitiveness and growth” that seem harmless enough on the surface but that’s not the full picture. Beneath the surface there are signs that the proposals will lead to a “race to the bottom” and an even-more-conflicted regulatory framework that will be under even more pressure to promote the short-term interests of the banks and the City of London over and above the long-term interests of society as a whole.
